Should I nofollow Flickr attribution links? (2 posts)

    I use a lot of images from Flickr on my site and always attribute them and include a link back to the original photo/author. My question is this, from an SEO and also generally accepted practice perspective, should these links be nofollow or do follow?

    Thanks for your help

    For SEO purposes, it will be advisable to use nofollow (rel="nofollow"). But sites that allow you to hotlink images may not like it, or in some cases, the links may not work. Check from Flickr if you are allowed to use the nofollow tag.
